Abstract

Due to changes in the nature of cartography and its role in geographic study, we must carefully evaluate our approach to cartographic instruction. Emphasized here is the need in both map making and map use education to direct attention to selection and organization of geographic information. Specifically, three objectives are addressed: 1) to present an overview of data selection and organization implications in map making and use, 2) to provide examples for use in the classroom as illustrations of concepts presented, and 3) to suggest student activities that emphasize potential effects of data selection and organization when making and using maps.
